Histologic and histometric evaluation of calvarial autogenous bone graft in reconstruction of atrophyc maxilla for dental implants

The calvarial bone is highlighted as a good donor area for large reconstructions of atrophic jaw for subsequent rehabilitation with implant-supported prosthesis. The aim of this study was to observe and measure through histological and histometric evaluation, the cellular events that occur at the interface of union from onlay parietal bone graft on the maxilla of 10 patients, after a period of 6 months of incorporation. The biopsies were performed at the time of installation of osseointegrated implants. The bone contact area represented 78.75% and connective contact 21.25%. The region of connective union between the bone graft to the maxillae presented new bone formation (41.26%), marrow bone (36.06%), osteoid tissue (15.86%) and connective tissue (6.80%). All samples had good graft incorporation to the receptor bed with osteogenic activity and absence of inflammatory cells.
